to be elected in asia and in nairobi kenya b.c. i believe me he is a t.v. personality actor activist and executive director of the b.c. of the me foundation. that's an organization that fights for the rights of algae between people in one theory i welcome to the stream all of you so good to have you here our community is really resonating with this topic or the topic is resonating with our community this is brian simms i want to start with a tweet here and he says on a positive note great way to start off the show there are more openly. people running for office than it any other time in u.s. history i think we are uniquely qualified to battle the awfulness that we see in government lately but me so the one thing i noticed many because we were introducing everybody that us fast in the field was the first person to come out on nigerian t.v. so he is also a for us i am just wondering guess that that weight of being the first what is it like is it a weight is it
11:24 pm
a release what is it you see. i think that maybe. you don't really because you're very good in a position where you're wearing someone to look up current and. you know you. have to do something no wonder i mean you're going to be very very. very. let's say your first was not like yes i would say i'm african-american. and the like and i think how do i know in the relief well and also the feeling. i mean it was fun to believe to ensuring that we were representing in a way that encourages there is also a run can also be added to also be. but it's a great place to be and i'm glad i could be open and serve here in colorado. well i wasn't concious of being the first because i was already out.
11:25 pm
successful. as you detectives because the organization in the. constituent assembly election was an ounce. of was the good opportunity for us to get into the other limb and didn't sit on the table to decide policy a new constitution for the other did just one day after i got elected some media. reported that i was the first openly gay member and they meant not only in but to. then realize how big we have made in and tomorrow you're part of history as well yes well i was out of eleven twelve here's the poor i ran so i got to this impression that it's your task to try to create a wordless and to create these ideas on that which it is necessary to to have
11:26 pm
a positive impact on the life for everybody are as a politician and not the center on the other to be iraqi conceivably i do want to share we can guess a video comment that came from the u.k. based l.t.p. t.v. rights activist peter tatchell so he recently made headlines following his arrest in moscow for protesting on the opening day of the well comp and russia and he can be seen how to sign retreats putting fails to act against torture of people and black to false was then approached by police and he was briefly detained before being released here's what he told the stream about why representation matters it's really important to have out and visible l.g.b. cheechoo public figures and the reasons are two fold. first to provide positive affirmative images of l g b t q people for those teens who are struggling
11:27 pm
with their sexuality or gender identity and second because the evidence is very clear if someone knows an elegy bt q. person they're much more likely to support l g b t q equal human rights so what what this means is that you're putting yourself out far as a public person and saying this is also my personal life as well how do you do that . well. you know something really important for for me personally but also for its beauty our communities because. throughout the world since the last several hundred years with the colonization the almost forty years and miss as you can see beauty has been throughout that worked so you know when they got to look to you didn't they it was
11:28 pm
do you surprised to see how little. the. lakes leasers other member harlem and knew about it but also staggering you how. you know they knew they were mrs you kitty they have all kinds of theory or if we give that is if you didn't know what you have in. other words if they could stand point we will you know so it's really degrading you two are people in this year's of you to people. and you know. lower class and cannot. rise. above team. and are useless basically didn't butt into the society so that the united got that
11:29 pm
opportunity to demystify if your kid reach out to get it so that's one thing you know education to the tailor representatives people are the legs yes it's the second thing was you know if if you and i are not represented there then you know nobody will represent nobody else is there to represent. issues and policies are never to be released. oh you know. so i'm so glad that you mentioned the your work to demystify some strongly held beliefs in your community because that is what some of our community members are working on themselves this is a tweet from lucy out of swansea land he says where a population of one point three million and we have many a times been said to be
11:30 pm
a country of a family we need recognition from our government to be shown in legislation we have no legal remedies from discrimination and stigma in the country still criminalize the same sex relations so that's one example out of swaziland another example came to us via a video comment this is are some parsi he's the executive director of a group called the iranian railroad for queer refugees he's now in toronto and this is why he said it is so important to have l.g.b. team members in public office and in the public eye have a listen a lot of us in the middle east we are in the closet and i think it gives us an opportunity to get into the politics and then within we can be inside the communal slowly slowly bring the change because you know these laws are very difficult to tolerate i used to really run for twenty four years and it is very hard finding and i'm sure there are a lot of energy to people in the middle east that they want to live in their countries do not exceed and escaped from their homeland and have some basic rights
11:31 pm
that. you see i'm wondering if you can take those two comments on people who see the importance of being in the public eye but it's difficult there are a lot of odds stacked against them. yes yes indeed. i spend a lot of my in the public eye and i know what he did like one mike nesmith thanked me dictation from the people you extract so much pressure on you to being a role model and do you all still to come and wall to cold to the sunday so that some people who don't see us the past people who don't think but you can still have a lot of people who don't think that these are two. and the important thing is consistency in theme in the public giving hope to young people to other people who are struggling who need someone to think discussing can do it and i can do it but he doesn't mean that you take all the bullets that are coming from people who are
11:32 pm
against the community and very much about how you strike the balance but i personally think that if i'm given the choice i will continue to stay in the public because for every person who finds validation in my story is much more important to me than someone who thinks i don't design. two for my story to be heard tamara i totally agree with your busy are i think the positive impact on the younger people of you being are out if. the mafia reward the whole. thing that you are doing because you're creating hope for those who have been excluded and do not foresee for any puter and but when they see you as an example you give hope and you give a warm those who abuse very difficult. yes i'm waiting for it and check out your skype i'm going to show you a headline from the daily mail this is from a year ago they mailed the first gentleman husband of luxembourg's gay prime
11:33 pm
minister joins the nato wifes and girlfriends let me show you that picture. let's say. discuss is justice gus. well you know i think we've come a long way in this country in the u.s. when it comes to you it's not going to be african-american. people in elected office and well obviously or and. also in ireland and discrimination unquestionably we now have our own white house and white we have the green court and less and less tolerant of where we are today and where americans are today and so i get very concerned when i see it being i mean. when it comes to you know. i'm very concerned that our actual act and unfortunately that means that
11:34 pm
our ability to also read pro l.g.b. . feelings and all of the around the world will use that fact as well and so right here in colorado and at state level a lot of openly l.g.b. people i find them are i mean at a level that people can and i've been there. not an all or a discrimination our. friend. and i hear you there i want to bring up a comment from someone who talks about the challenges during the campaign and so this is a this isn't the us that says i ran and won for borough council here in pennsylvania in two thousand and nine i was contacted by another councilman who had been called about a picture on my my space course you remember that site you might be eating yourself there but. my space the social networking site before it before facebook he says a friend who was a drag queen was pictured there and he was told i don't care what you do but it's
11:35 pm
in your best interest to remove about picture he goes on to say i should add that this happened during the campaign and it bothered me as i hadn't planned to make my sexuality an issue in this race unless it was necessary but it was kind of offensive that people were sinking this low and telling supporters of mine that people were talking now this is one example i know for you personally you've had rocks thrown at you you had a court case opened against you talked to us about some of those challenges. well the. usual challenge is. i want to talk about when. there are. discrimination and violence against one minority. of that country the other minorities are equally ungentle so there's you know miss him and country can take on. how how difficult time state of emergency the democracy was was crushed by the monarchy then who took the data who were dismissed on them and
11:36 pm
the time. the most insurgency was in its peak and rampant human rights violation by many must suffer. where the minority groups. disabilities women single women this it'll cost people you know which is the oppressed for centuries so then you know we faced we piece to court challenge. fundamental you know fundamentalist was was also. a challenge filed late edition in a supreme court to close down the u.s. veto this in. court was you know more enlightened than the government then and then. give a decision sake try talking to. a new minority groups or anybody is
11:37 pm
a course you should know so that was a big if but. you know the challenging time there was silence by security forces. you know getting organelle from a why i think is extraordinary about your story is not that activism that you've been doing and the political office that you held but the fact that this is all happening in nepal which is not an area where we think oh it's a very progressive area it's very open to. right what do you think happened at that time to make it a place where you could to run for office and hold office. well but the museum we have had enough of creation. all the challenges and we said you know it's generation i for it that's one thing but also time was a very right because the one country going through
11:38 pm
a difficult time that democracy was was cost crushed by the bulletin boards so on the other civil society were also you know i think we do in the forest to get there and then the whole you know quality and inclusion you know. eliminating discrimination stigma was the you know national agenda for everybody ok so when when. you know seven we had this interim parliament and then election up and. there was the opportunity in this case was was more open you know an inclusive understandably get to this i want to show you. a movie that's been made about the life a timer has the trial how to look. for.
11:39 pm
i don't really need as one room would have all yet they were reality for a while frankly got me going for a them a present the way. you're going to see on. camera when you have a movie being made about you and made about you know that you know important one of the things i was really curious about was how do you can compound how would you out there talking to the public and encouraging them to vote for. well actually the fact is that when you are totally out you do not only for rights you have the. duty to pipe for everyone's rights women's rights might want to write in general and for every day strives for everybody so when you are doing a campaign you're talking to everyone and compasses in the needs of everyone because
11:40 pm
there is not all the b.l.t. to be a community of it's going to bolt for you it's everyone that you are asking. to quote for you and this is the real task to be perceived and to beyond your stood as a person who actually fights for everyone. so interesting that you mentioned you don't only fight for l.g.b. t. rights because we've got a good conversation going online among some people and i'd like to share with you the first is a bit of this is from a nice parker and she's the former mayor of the city of houston and also the president and c.e.o. of the victory fine here in washington d.c. and this is what she told the stream we believe that it is important to have out elected officials at all levels of government advocating for community they are good public servants they work hard for their constituents but they also shape the dialogue around the needs of the keep unity we have great at once but we need to
11:41 pm
speak for ourselves because we are also role models for the next generation of leaders that comes behind us. so she mentions that leslie that she is working hard for all constituents but also members specifically in the l g b t community and that's it an idea that brian here picks up on he says one of the major challenges is recognizing that i can never fully represent the breath and the depth of the communities while simultaneously being the only out person in my legislature i have to teach i have to explain and i often embody the lessons that i've learned can you talk to us about that issue about representing our community but then of course not being the one spokesperson for all that community and having issues that affect the entire constituency. yes so here in colorado we're fighting for a lot of things i make sure that we unite immigrant family with their kids right
11:42 pm
what i'm fighting to make sure that people understand that black eyes matter and that people shouldn't be relied on for on our street there are the. issues i work on i have an african-american person at a legislator at a community member and i want to be. and it's going to be hard to do that if you're the only one representing because you have to build the relationship you have to be your authentic self but not everyone like me that everyone in l g b t community believes everything that i believe in might have an area in the lab i think it's so important that we let more. people into the abyss laugh i'm very we made sure to expand the number in that. and i actually think that's they got two more members elected there i marry i have to run their general their november but i'll be there to help and i think that also really important i'll tell you
11:43 pm

distribution of refugees are still there one at the same time another one hundred. refugees are believed to have drowned at sea also on the grid the shooting at a local newspaper in the united states five people dead and this time not just anger over gun control but over the targeting of journalists and how anti media rhetoric in the us has contributed to toxicants and it's got all the reaction to the story online trust the latest hash tag campaigns i mean the mohammad's next that's out to show us the hash tag aging is great and four years since i sold a coded so-called caliphate in iraq and syria we are back in the city of mosul guess it was liberated by the iraqi army but life has in no way turned to. you with the news great live on air and streaming online through you tube facebook live underground as they were dot com and the irony of inaction shall we say
11:50 pm
couldn't be more stock european leaders striking a hard fought but vaguely worded agreement over how to deal with migrants in the mediterranean last more than one hundred of them drowned off the coast of libya in another migrant boat sinking if nothing else it highlights the need for cooperation between divided european nations there is the change for the next migrants who is there change for the next migrants who do reach europe lawrence. with the details on the summit in brussels. when the future of the european union may be at stake it's worth staying up all night to save its so that's what they did. emerging warily at five in the morning the french president suggested they had bridged the gap many thought impossible to sympathize with. europe is not an island and we must be able to face up to this challenge was remaining loyal to our values and protect our people and national cohesion tonight we took an important step many predicted the impossibility of an agreement many predicted the triumph of national solutions
11:51 pm
tonight we have succeeded in finding a european solution and a way of working in cooperation. micron will take the credit for winning the rebellious it's how he and governments around the breakthrough policy is to set up sensors at which migrants and refugees will be screened and either sent home or resettled among countries prepared to have them even if it isn't clear how the italians who would also demanded reform of wider asylum rules then signals that consents. at the end of the european council have a more responsible and more united europe italy is no longer alone. and keeping the hardliners happy extended to germany as well where chancellor merkel's political future has been in the balance the indication seems to be that the right wingers in her coalition seem satisfied that germany will be better protected from mass refugee flows the merkel has self acknowledged the vos rift in europe about
11:52 pm
humanitarian values this is kind of moot we have agreed on five guidelines but two are still lacking a common european asylum system but i'm optimistic after today that we can really continue to work even though there is still a lot to be done to bridge the different views other moves like strengthening support for the libyan coast guard will be condemned by humanitarian organizations as europe turning its back on its legal obligations if this were a success it was only in that it staved off the apparent imminent collapse of the european union under the weight of migration but in doing so it gave more weight to the populist right wing in europe a further retreat from the liberal values the european union is so fond of proclaiming. and as ever the final communique was long on wishes and very short on promises about how to accomplish them this may have averted a crisis for now but europe remains a political unit deeply unhappy lawrence li al jazeera brussels well it's a new populist prime minister had threatened to block the deal unless other e.u.
11:53 pm
countries agreed to share the number of refugees coming to the charlie angela has more for us from sicily. we're hearing tanya and this is the last ship that brought in rescued migrants two weeks ago since then interior minister matteo salvini has closed italy's ports and at the summit there was no discussion as to what will happen the next time a european boat carrying rescued migrants is left stranded in the mediterranean instead italy's prime minister just emerged from the summit saying italy is no longer alone he went in threatening to use his veto if there was not an agreement that suited italy he did and because of that italians believe they got some concessions but nothing will change if we don't play hardball on grey's our voices we never get anything so broad really long. under the new e.u. agreement italy could host voluntarily new migrant centers that would process all arrivals and determine which are genuine refugees and which are illegal migrants to
11:54 pm
be sent back these would be financed and managed by the e.u. this country already has refugee camps the difference is that these arrivals would no longer be subject to the dublin regulations italy would not be responsible for them solely the idea is they could be divided up between other member states but again there's no concrete agreement on how that would happen and for italians sharing the burden is a key issue. so that's all i had to italy's been left alone it's true but of course i don't agree on the methods used by our interior minister i do think europe has to be reformed especially because there is no agreement on this issue the agreement also promises to explore the idea of setting up disembarkation platforms in north africa to try and process migrants before they even attempt to the mediterranean crossing but not all italians are convinced because he was offered a full trying to fix the problem in africa on the spot and trying to help them here it is really difficult those fleeing war should always be welcomed and not pushed
11:55 pm
away but pushing away is exactly what italy has done in closing its ports and the new e.u. declaration that asylum seekers landing in italy are actually arriving in europe seems almost redundant we always need more time on this topic much to talk about but that's what inside story is there for the most recent discussion was about the european migration issue and whether it is indeed make or break time for the constant peter davi leading that particular discussion you will find inside story as ever in the program section as a result. and you can get in touch with us as well contact details for you on screen hash tag a j news grid on all your correspondents plays be it on twitter you can replies throughout threads that a.j. english which go at just before the show you can go to facebook dot com slash al-jazeera which is where i've already heard she distinct from peter who said to little too late the invasion of europe has already begun i guess that's the flip side of the argument people who feel that they are being quote unquote invaded from
11:56 pm
across the mediterranean is that numbers are plus nine seven four five or one triple one four nine facebook and no telegram and whatsapp up and running for the news grid ok let's move on a man's been charged with murder now after five people were shot dead at a newspaper office in the u.s. state of maryland the shooting happened in and napa lists the suspect identified as thirty eight year old jared ramos local media reported he had a long standing grudge with the newspaper after unsuccessfully suing it in twenty twelve for defamation. this was a targeted attack on the capital because that that is located in eight best gate road in the first floor. he entered the building with a shotgun. and he looked for his victims as he walked through the lower level live to annapolis now here's heidi heidi. the morning news just
11:57 pm
a little bit different today. that's right but you know come all the newspaper kept its promise that this morning less than twenty four hours after this carnage unfolded they have indeed published this morning's issue with a headline five shot dead at the capitol reporting on the passing of their own colleagues whose pictures are memorialized on this front page the suspect of that shooting thirty eight year old jared rameses is expected to be in court right now for his arraignment as you mentioned he faces five murder charges for more on this story we're joined by our guest them there of annapolis. mr buckley who is here now you tell me that this. newspaper was an integrity part of this community how and where is the capital of that so the people that work for this news for this editor that they're our friends you know we see them like the local news they cover city hall. we have intimate relationships with all of them we know the first responders
11:58 pm
that went into the buildings that ran towards this is a small community thirty thousand people live in the city most of the five hundred thousand in the county but that the the town center really revolves a lot of around this newspaper and that's how we keep informed and we know that the suspect in this case had some sort of grudge against this paper but this was a not incendiary in any sense that the type of things i think were published can you describe the sort of stories that normally would appear you know what's so frustrating about this this incident is that this is not a left wing paper it's not a right wing pipe it's just a local. local community and it's one of the oldest pipe is in the country and so for someone to be offended someone to be that angry that they would want to take a loss because of what these guys do and these guys these journalists that i'm like a lot of money you know they they work they do it because they love journalism and they love getting the story out and i'm sure none of them when they're at
11:59 pm
journalists isn't school for that this would be part of their routine just as teaches i'm sure they want to just go to college so i don't think that now on that i have to learn how to use a gun or evacuated from an active shooter there buckley we know that this gunman according to police had a shotgun that he targeted these employees of a newspaper what do you think needs to change prevent this sort of thing happening in the future i mean i think that we have to talk about mental health we have to talk about gun control we have to talk about was i we taught leeway on as a society was i we have been given a loss and some people think they've been given loss and just be angry people can have different opinion. but just because someone has a different opinion to you shouldn't and you shouldn't want to do them. now there has been a lot of speculation that because of the current political climate and that it's more dangerous to be a journalist in the united states today some of the rhetoric coming from the white
12:00 am
house calling the media the nation's worst enemy etc do you think that may have contributed any way to what happened here yesterday i think there was definitely some politics involved i think that the media is under attack and i think that we. have to be mindful that you just. don't. tell the stories that we need to and we have to stand up for you and we have to protect you and. that didn't happen yesterday thank you so much for your time about place and a vigil is planned this evening in annapolis remember those five employees slaying but perhaps the one morial that speaks allowed to sit with plank opinion page published in this morning's capitol because that with the words today we are speechless. extraordinary stuff thank you his account star in annapolis maryland inevitably a story like this plays out online as well in real time and like many of you i'm
